Jesus said, "If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. By this, My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples" (John 15:7-8 NKJV). To glorify God by growing spiritually and bearing fruit, we need to know how to abide in Him, and let His Words abide in us.
God's Word abides in you, as you daily read the Bible, think about it, pray according to it, and live it. As you abide in Him, you literally begin to think like God thinks, and look at situations from His point of view. You go from just reading His Word, to understanding it. It becomes a part of you.
The Word of God is "alive and powerful" (Hebrews 4:12), and it has the ability to change you. Romans 12:2 says, "Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God" (NKJV). The word "transformed" used here refers to metamorphosis. It implies that like a caterpillar grows into a butterfly, we grow spiritually stronger, as we renew our minds with the Word of God.
